A professional soccer player remains in jail after being arrested on charges that he raped a woman while staying in Brookhaven, police said.
Police said Bryan Joshua Arguez, 24, is in DeKalb County Jail, charged with one count of rape. The alleged incident occurred on Aug. 11 at a Brookhaven residence, police said.
Arguez plays for the Carolina RailHawks and was in town for a game against the Atlanta Silverbacks.
Police said Arguez was staying with a friend in Brookhaven at the time of the alleged attack.
The soccer player and his friends had returned from a local club prior to the alleged incident, police said.
“Arguez was supposed to be sleeping on a couch downstairs when he entered the second floor room of another woman and (allegedly) raped her,” police claim in a press release. “The victim told Brookhaven investigators that she was asleep and awoke in the early morning hours of Aug. 11 to find Arguez on top of her.”
The victim called 911 and Arguez was arrested “without incident,” according to police. On Wednesday, a judge granted Arguez a $75,000 bond, police said. He remained in DeKalb County Jail as of Thursday.
